Gwen and Stephen have decided to adopt the tradition of Russian czars who issued an ukaz to their subjects when they wanted to make their wishes known. G&S decree that their proclamations henceforth will be known as an ucawz :

An Ukaz from Peter the First

An Ukaz from Peter the First

Their Corvid Majesties hereby announce:

  1. As a general matter, fruits and vegetables are an abomination. However, apple pie turns out to be worthy of consumption. Human minions may offer pie to Their Corvid Majesties.
  2. A varikennel has appeared in the imperial enclosure. We are neither fooled nor amused. Let there be no misunderstanding: trips to the vet (especially on Saturday the 11th of February) are forbidden in the strictest possible terms and will not be tolerated.
  3. Peasant American crows start building nests in February. It is an affront to their Corvid Majesties to suggest in any way that they should follow this schedule. Accordingly, Room Service Woman is commanded to cease presenting sticks to Their Serene Avian Worships at this time. Any nest-building material will be rejected with Extreme Displeasure.

Done this 9th Day of February 2016 & the 5th of Our Reign
